HEED THIS VALUABLE LESSON
VALUABLES continue to be left in cars. It’s about people being vigilant and looking after security on their property. If you haven’t got anything on display, offenders won’t be taking it, so make sure you don’t give them the opportunity. – Scarborough Police Senior Sergeant Glenn Dowding

ON January 29, a Stirling home was burgled while occupants were home and cash and a laptop was stolen.

CARINE POLICE have charged a man, who already had his license disqualified for life over a car chase that ended in Carine last week. The chase started when police tried to stop a stolen Holden ute on Crimea Street in Morley about 10.40am on February 1. The driver allegedly failed to stop and accelerated away, where he continued driving in a “reckless manner” through suburbs including Balcatta. The driver abandoned the car after it hit a letterbox outside a home on Alsace Street in Carine. Mirrabooka Detectives have charged the 21-year-old Leda man with various offences, including stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving, having no authority to drive, failing to stop and property damage.
